Dua that Saved Prophet Ibrahim from the Fire (and hardship)

When Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) was relaying Allah’s (God’s) message, he warned his people not to take idols made of wood and stones as their false gods. To make his point that these idols could not help them in anyway, one day while the people were attending a festival, he broke their idols. The Quran relays this story in the following verses:

“So he broke them to pieces, (all) except the biggest of them, that they might turn to it” [Surah al-Anbiyaa 21:58]

Once the people returned from the festival, they saw the broken idols and they accused Prophet Ibrahim (of breaking them). He said to them:

“Nay, this one, the biggest of them (idols) did it. Ask them, if they can speak!”
[Surah al-Anbiyaa 21:63]

Because they knew that these idols could not speak, they said to Ibrahim:

“Indeed you [Ibrahim (Abraham)] know well that these (idols) speak not!”
[Surah al-Anbiyaa’ 21:65]

When they admitted that these idols could do nothing, Ibrahim said to them:

“Do you then worship (these idols) besides Allah, things that can neither profit you, nor harm you? Fie upon you, and upon that which you worship besides Allah! Have you then no sense?”
[Surah al-Anbiyaa’ 21:67]

When they had exhausted all lines of argument, they resorted to the use of force and said:

“Burn him and help your aalihah (gods), if you will be doing”
[Surah al-Anbiyaa’ 21:68]

They therefore decided to burn him in a great fire and called the masses to witness the event. Then they threw Ibrahim (peace be upon him) into that fire.

He said,

“Hasbi Allah wa ni’am al-wakeel (Allah is sufficient for me and He is the best Disposer of affairs).”

So Allah saved him from it and made it coolness and safety for him, and foiled the plot of his enemies.

The Quran mentions this in the following verse:

“We (Allah) said: ‘O fire! Be you coolness and safety for Ibrahim (Abraham)!’
And they wanted to harm him, but We made them the worst losers”
[Surah al-Anbiyaa 21:69-70]

This Dua, therefore, can be recited in times of hardship and challenges. This Dua appears in the following verse of Surah Aal-e-Imran and was revealed on Prophet Muhammad (SAW) when his enemies had gathered around him. Abu Bakr Ibn Marduwyah recorded that Anas bin Malik said that the Prophet, sallallaahu alayhi wassallam was told on the day of Uhud, “Verily, the people have gathered against you, therefore, fear them.” Thereafter, Allah sent down this Ayah 3:173. (Surah Aal-e-Imran Complete)

aal-e-imran1

“Those (i.e. believers) unto whom the people (hypocrites) said, “Verily, the people (pagans) have gathered against you (a great army), therefore, fear them.” But it (only) increased them in Faith, and they said: “Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).”

[Surah Aal-e-Imran 3:173]
